What Volunteers Say about RCR

“Once again I feel a need to write to compliment you on your excellent and caring staff! As you might know, I was in this morning to participate in a follow-up study. I was greeted as if I was a member of the family who hadn’t been home to visit for a while! All the nurses in the center and especially, Chris were excited to see me and find out how I was doing. I can’t tell you how good it makes a person feel when the staff are genuinely interested in a patient’s health and health care and beyond that, a patient’s life. It makes the challenges of the clinical studies you run much easier to handle. I had a wonderful experience participating in the two-year study and today’s visit was no different. So, keep up the good work! I hope to continue to hear about all of Rochester Clinical Research’s successes from your newsletter and other media outlets. Kind regards,”

“Just a brief note of appreciation to you and your staff for the excellent attention and professional service received as a participant in one of your clinical trials. It was a pleasure to play a small part in your contribution to the advancement of medical research, and I sincerely hope that the study was as beneficial to your organization as it was to me. Looking forward to the possibility of assisting you again, and with best wishes for continued success."

“Thank you to all the staff. You are special people. Liz is always so pleasant. Sally and Vicki couldn’t have been more encouraging. These girls are keepers! Drs. D. and W. were very professional and answered any questions I had readily. The gal that took my blood was so gracious and practically pain free. Thanks, I’d do it again!”
